How Much Time Does Your Child Spend Online?
A quick Google search on the topic of screen time will throw up plenty of answers to the question "How much Time do Children Spend Online?". The answer - too much. The numbers range from several hours a day to "if they are awake they are online". How much time should your child be online? That's up to you. And that is the important thing. If it is up to you then you need to have a way to control it and manage it.
curbi allows you to have a conversation with your child about how much time they should spend online and then set up appropriate schedules and time limits which will encourage good habits. Generally, when encouraged to let go of the device for a while children, being naturally curious anyway, will explore other options to occupy their time. Sometimes this will be activity still on the device, but not online. You will find they will read more, do more homework, be more productive and constructive, and they will play more. Maybe, even outside.
Where Does Your Child Visit Online?
You can't be monitoring your child's online activity 24/7. We all have busy lives and let's face it, these days our kids probably know more about the technology than we do! We've all heard of the dark side of the Internet and suspect that there is a lot of sites we don't want our child to see. Wouldn't it be good if you could have complete confidence that your child was protected from inappropriate or adult content? Well now you can.
curbi allows you to set up rules that pick and choose the content that your child can access on the Internet. You can block specific types of content with a single click. You can also add a specific site to the list easily should the default filtering rules not achieve what you want (but we think they will). You can set up different devices with different settings depending on you child's age.
curbi makes a note of all the sites visited by your child, whether through the browser or through any of the many apps that may be installed and connect to the Internet. You can view this information to see where on the Internet they visit and make necessary changes to the rules if necessary. curbi is designed to allow easy, reliable content filtering based on categories of content. curbi's filter is constantly updated to include new websites so you never have to worry about it.
curbi makes the Internet safer for your child.
Is Your Child Wasting Time Online?
We all know that times are changing fast. Like it or not, being online has become a part of our daily lives, probably more so for our children than it is for us. Children are now expected to do their homework online, communicate with their teachers and classmates online, and learn how to be a productive citizen in a modern world. The problem is there are too many distractions. Games, social media like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, video sites like YouTube, and many others, all try to lure you child away from the important things they need to do. Games, fun and socialising are all great things that you can do on iOS devices, but we all want a balance and see our children succeed too. Right? Now there is a solution.
curbi allows you to restrict the amount of time that your child spends on sites and apps that waste time. Games, videos, and social networking can all be restricted at the times you specify and allowed at the times you specify. You can use curbi's monitoring features to see what your child is accessing online and for how long to help you determine what restrictions you may want to apply.
curbi is there to help you define the boundaries and give you the control.
How About You Set The Rules
The heart of curbi is it's rules. curbi has been designed to provide parents with a simple but effective way to set rules for device use. curbi's rule system uses this simple approach. You decide:
- What to block - curbi allows you to set the Category that the rule applies to, for example Social Media, Video or "Block All' to block everything;
- When to block it - the curbi scheduling system lets you set timings that make sense. Bedtime, Study Time and even Daily Quotas (Android only); and
- Which device/s to apply the rule to - you may decide to apply a rule to a number of devices, or just the one.
The unique time + content approach allows you to set boundaries that suit your family and your lifestyle. Importantly, it allows you to work with your child to agree on what those boundaries are. You can be as strict or open as you like and the curbi will not get in the way.
